    The weather around here hasn't been cooperating so I decided to cure my photo addiction with some indoor shots. This picture was taken with tungsten light to get the color you see here. No Photoshop was used.

    Nice! Got any other style chess pieces? One of the sets with more detailed peices would look great in that shot!

    Thanks for commenting LizM. The cheapo chess set I got doesn't have much detail to begin with. The knight piece is pretty much the one with the most shapely look to it. I really don't play chess that often to get a better set...I play maybe once a year. ;)

    If you want to try the shot with other pieces haunt the local thrift shop. You may be able to pick up just the pieces you want for a quarter or so.

    Again, really great shot!

    Are those translucent? Or is that just the way it is reflecting off the surface? Neat colors!

    Thanks again for all the nice comments. I appreciate it.

    Yes, that's a good idea.

    They are semi-translucent so it's a combination of both.

    I thought someone might say that. I guess I should have picked a better title. ;)

    They were shot on my bed to get the cushioning effect.
